Learn More About Healthcare Legislation

Health care has taken center stage in the last few months in the United States. From debates on Capitol Hill, to town hall meetings, to non-stop media coverage, topics like insurance coverage, Medicaid expansion, and payment reform have been on everyone’s minds.

If you’re feeling confused by high risk pools, health savings accounts and pre-existing conditions we have a great resource for you! Dr. Don Berwick, IHI President Emeritus and Senior Fellow has created a video that lays out the basics of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

No matter your view, we believe a common understanding of the issues is critical!

Recap: QISP Annual Symposium- 4/20

IMG_3409Thank you to all who attended IHI’s Annual Quality & Innovations Scholars Program Symposium, our capstone event for the year.

The event showcased the work of the 2015-2016 Quality & Innovation Scholars to an audience of over 50 students across the schools of medicine, nursing, business, engineering, public policy, global health, as well as physicians and administrators from many departments of DUHS.

We learned about the efforts of 12 practicum teams through poster exhibitions and of six teams through brief oral presentations. In recognition of their work, Elliot Le (SOM) and Patrick O’Shea (Fuqua/UNC SOM) were awarded full travel scholarships ($1,000 each) to present their project “Standardizing Text Paging to Improve Physician-Nurse Communication: A Pilot Study” at IHI’s National Forum in Orlando, Florida in December 2016. They were mentored by Alicia Clark, MD and Lindsay Boole, MD. Yingna Liu (SOM) and Lauren Teague (SON) each received partial travel scholarships ($500 each) for their project entitled “Standardizing Protocols in the Duke Outpatient Clinic.” They were mentored by Julia Gamble, NP and Lynn Bowlby, MD.

We capped off the evening by hearing from a panel of DUHS leaders: Jon Bae, MD; George Cheely, MD, MBA; Heather Marstiller, MBA; Cary Ward, MD; Janet Bettger, DSc, FAHA. Their discussion added insightful context to the work these students and their mentors have put in over the past academic year.

Congratulations again to the QISP Scholars on a fantastic year!
